We’re taking over the 6th annual Art After Dark, an after-hours fundraising event for the Art Museum of the Americas on Friday, August 28. This year promises to be a spectacular night filled with video art projected on the building outside, live music by Matias Aguayo of Chile, performance art by Dominique Paul of Canada, and renowned DJ Kelton Higgins. The Waterweavers exhibit, as raved about in the New York Times and the Washington Post, will be open late for your viewing pleasure.
